Expert is CEO at GaveKal, a financial services firm that provides research, money management and software services to asset managers and corporations.
He launched Gavekal with Charles Gave and Anatole Kaletsky. The idea at the time was that Asia was set to become an ever more important factor in global growth and that, consequently, Gavekal needed to offer its clients more information, and more ideas, relating to Asia.
Expert has written six books, the latest being Clash of Empires: Currencies and Power in a Multipolar World which discusses the consequences of a world which seems to be breaking up into three distinct monetary zones, each with its own reserve currency, its own fiscal policy, its own imperial ambitions and perhaps even its own supply chains.
He is the non-executive chairman of ROBO Global LLC. He is also a non-executive director at Evergreen Gavekal, a Bellevue, Washington based private wealth manager.
